North Sea AHTS rates remain strongNews // November 4, 2014
Seabrokers reports that rates for AHTS vessels in the North Sea have fallen from their highs in August and September, but have "held up pretty well," especially
compared with this time in 2013.
Seabrokers said average rates for large AHTS vessels remained above £50,000 for the third month in a row, while average fixture levels for smaller vessels remained north of £30,000.
Seabrokers said the recent return of a host of vessels from Russia has increased the supply base of AHTS vessels in the spot market, but demand levels remain high so there may still be some strength left in the market for owners this year.
